Has aging started to chance your appearance? Your face is a reflection of who you are, and it should reflect the beauty and personality that lie within. Unfortunately, your face is one of the first areas to show signs of aging – from sun exposure to heredity to normal wear and tear, your face doesn’t always accurately portray the peace and joy you feel on the inside. As signs of aging begin, you may start to feel less confident when you look in the mirror.
If you are considering facial plastic surgery to achieve a youthful appearance, you will need to decide whether you want to pursue a surgical or non-surgical solution. Surgical and non-surgical procedures are not interchangeable — for example, you will never get the same results as a facelift with non-surgical options. However, depending on your needs and expectations, you can have satisfying results either way.
Which type of procedure should I choose?
Choosing between surgical and non-surgical facial procedures depends on your needs and expectations. If you need permanent results, you will want to consider surgery. Surgical options can be as dramatic or as subtle as you desire. Below are some common facial surgical procedures.
- Facelifts: Restore youthful features by tightening and removing extra skin. Various facelifts include full facelifts, mini facelifts and cheek and neck lifts.
- Blepharoplasty: Eyelid surgery to remove excess skin and/or fat from the eyelids to achieve a more youthful appearance. Upper-eyelid blepharoplasty removes excess eyelid skin, but not brow heaviness. Lower-eyelid blepharoplasty targets puffiness (bags) below eyes and wrinkles.
- Brow lift: Forehead lift to smooth horizontal forehead wrinkles, vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows and crow’s feet wrinkles on the outsides of the eyes. A brow lift resolves brow heaviness and makes the eyes look bigger.
If you want a temporary solution for moderate aging, you may be happy with injectables, fillers and laser treatments. A combination of these will result in an especially noticeable solution. You can always use fillers while you continue to age, and then seek a more permanent option when you’re ready.
